1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
8 oz. ground sirloin
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup baby spinach (roughly chopped)
1 12-oz. Signature Kitchens® Biscuits
1 tsp water
1. Coat a large sauté pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add onion and pepper. Cook 2-3 minutes, until onions are slightly translucent. Add ground sirloin, cumin, salt and pepper. Continue to cook until ground beef is done, then stir in spinach (about 8 minutes). Drain excess fat. Remove from heat to slightly cool.
2. Preheat oven to 400°. Between 2 sheets of parchment paper, roll one biscuit into a 5 to 6-inch circle. Add 2 tablespoons filling to one side of the round. Fold other side of dough over the filling and press to seal the edges of the dough together, creating a half moon shape.
3. Beat egg and water together. Brush empanada with egg wash. Repeat process until all empanadas are finished.
4. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Add empanadas and bake about 10 minutes, until golden brown.
